Australia confirms azinphos-methyl approvals

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has formally completed its review of the organophosphate insecticide, azinphos-methyl, and confirmed the continuation of registrations. The APVMA issued its preliminary review for azinphos-methyl in 2006 and published its review findings in 2011 but did not complete the review pending an examination of regulatory decisions in other countries. The APVMA has reviewed those decisions and concluded that there is no new information that would warrant a revision of its 2011 findings. Azinphos-methyl is registered in Australia for use on fruit and nut crops, primarily for the control of codling moths (Cydia pomonella) and light brown apple moths (Epiphyas postvittana). The technical registrant is Adama Australia and the approved end-use products are Adama's Farmoz Gusathion 200 SC and Colin Campbell (Chemicals)'s Campbell Benthion 200 Flowable.
